FRIDAY, JUNE, 24, 1887.
Xtempest in a teapot.
MER1C1TT, NOT MERIT.
.1 .Vt'if Daniel lias Come to Judgement.
Last week our prolem made a brief
reply to the abusive article in the Ore
gon Sentinel of June lllh, 1887.
When Ave cumc home it was shown us,
and we feel it our duty to say a word
in reply to this paragon of erudition and
journalistic politeness. Prof. Merritr,
a gentleman of local notoriety in and
about Jacksonville, a man who has but
recently doffed his pedagogic parapher
nalia, and who has had his name as
associate editor of that neat little
sheet, so latelv. printed upon its fore
castle, iand looking at it every day no
doubt, he felt that he was destined to
become in a short time the embodi
ment of "good manners," "purity of
diction," and 'polished phraseology of
a scholar." Now we wrote thi3 little
local about the Times a fow weeks
back. Here it is.
We often differ from the Jackson
ville Times, but are pleased to say
that it is one of our very best state ex
changes, and nothing can be more con
temptible than the petty flings made
at it by its neighboring contemporar
ies. Stop growling at the Time?, and
make as good a paper and you will do
And now behold nearly a column
of irrelevant vaporings about The Re
view editor. What harm did we ever
do you Mr. Merritt, that you should
descend to such ilo epithets unbecom
ing a gentleman of your prefessed
culture? "We are not Mr. Nichol's
apologist. We only stated what was
true. What makes you roar so much
like ShakespearV mooncalf in "The
Tempest" Did we strike you between
the joints of the harness, or while you
were fleeing like a coward, did our mis
sile hit you in the neel, the vulnerable
place of Acbilles, a greater man t'.mn
whom never lived, until the nineteenth
century, and a man of "polished man
ners at that, and can no.v be found ir.
Jackson county Oregon, helping tt.
edit a little 7 column newspaper.
Our extreme modesty almost prevents
us from suggesting to one that has cf
late shown symptoms of the enlarge
ment of the brain, that truth is an es
sential quality in a newspaper artiele.
Take this for example from the man of
diction and "scholarly phraseology "
"The readers' of The Review will re
member that during his clerkship incu
bating season the editor of that paper
delivered himself of a bombastic, gar
rulous, omnipotent I, impotent you,
sort of an article, against the editor of
As a matter of fact that article re
ferred to by this doughty gentleman,
was not written for quite a period
after our clerkship had hatched and we
had begun to preen our wings to take
flight to that higher, "sacerdotal" at
mosphere, about which the "polished
mannered" gentleman HO eloquently
talks. lie says, when we make a
better paper than the Sentinel, then,
and only then, will he listen to what
we have to say. This suggestion is a
very striking sign of a dangerous di
sease of this journalistic fledgeling,
called in pure English, the "Big head."
Make a better paper than the Sentinel
indeed. Bright and brilliant reasoning
for a "scholar." Such words as "in
jection, louse, hypocritical" and the like
in an article written by Mr. Merritt
the leading schoolmaster of Jackson
ville, shows that a dose of "good man
ners," would be a wholesome decoc
tion for this pretentious half editor, of
the hybrid sheet, half democrat, half
republican, Jackson and Merritt, a
compound monstrosity; half saint, half
devil, and by close scrutiny of these
phrases, you may perce've who his
eatanic majesty is. Now Mr. Merritt,
fairly and squarly, surely our little
item did not give the offence you make
out. You must hayehad a small quan
tum of pent up venom at us because we
dared to suggest that the Times was a
better paper than the Sentinel, with
the man of "diction at its head. This
of course you could not endure, and you
thought you saw a near cut to notoriety,
and in order to impress your admiring
fnntsfif npni'V frmiio-ri vprv Kmn.!).l With
vour wonderful powers of invective,
you let fly at us. The inapt references
you make about us, such as "phari
saicnl assumption; disparaging other
papers, arrogation, political ambition,
hypocritically inconsistent" and the
like, "became the thing, wherein was
caught the conscience of the king."
The readers of your gratituous, marked
copies sent to this section saw the man
of "polished" exterior, making an ef
fort to "out Herod, Herod." But
your flimsy and tattered effort only
made von the more ridiculous. The
'gentleman that made such a pretty
sneech in Roseburz once on a time
says that he will not "listen to us
never, no, never," until we are an es
tablished success." The logical infer
ence of this sentence is that he, Mr.
Merritt, the qitasi editor of the Ore
gon Sentinel, is capable of judging
when a man is a Euccess. Or pvehajps
he means that lie is a brilliant success,
and is therefore a capable umpire of
Oregon journalism. Now sir, with a
trembling hand in your royal presence,
we pen this line to you; a man so de
void of journalistic or gentlemanly
couitesy as yourself, a man that will
grab at a straw to find a pretext to
write as you did in that unmanly ar
ticle headed "inconsistent and insolent"
in your issue of June 11th, is not des
tined in our humble opinion to become
ac an early day a second Horace Greely,
or Dana, or a Pulitzer, or even a
Ilarvy Scott. When your belligerent
soul gets on fire again, or you feel that
you are going to have another unpro
voked eruption, or about the time you
have intimations that you are going to
pour forth some of your editorial, Vesu-
vian lava upon us, do not fail to let us
know, that we may hie away to some
place of refuge to avert if possible the
fury of the Assyrian Kipg, who leaves
only destruction in his wake, with his
"purity of diction, polished manners,
and scholarly phraseolcgf."
A BJllEF STATEMENT.
Inasmuch as I have heard of late
that the animus that prompted my
change ofchurch relations, was the ill
feeling that I entertained against the
Southern Methodist Church, therefore
I believe it to be my christian duty to
say that no such feeling ever did exist
in my heart against the great connec
tionatism that has done for me more
than allother3 combine J; I hiva always
from early youth enjoyed strong pre
direction's for the Presbyterian church,
bacause of its conservative and efficient
representative form of go vernment,
because of its splendid history; and its
correct statements of practical theol
ogy. Yet, with all this in my mind,
it was no easy matter to sever myself
from a church that is doing a wonder
ful work in the world, and has done
much for me. And also, I believe,
that a particular church relation is
not essential to salvation. 1' believe
that church relation should be simply
a matter ot preference, and not a mat
ter of bigoted prejudice. I believe
that persons will get to Heaven from
every church under the sun. I have
the kindest feelings for the Southern
Methodist, and for the M. E. Church,
md for all christian denominations.
The Southern Methodists, a few of
them in Oregon thought that 1 should
not speak in a private way, (and I
neve spoke in public, or wrote a line
for the press until this moment upon
this topic) my convictions as to the
efficient perpetuity of the M. E. Church
South upon this coast, otherwise it
would subject me to the charge of dis
loyalty. Now I did not believe that
we could ultimately succeed as a vital
church organization in Oregon fend
Washington Territory, I believed thai
the M. E. Church could care for all of
the Arminian school of theology, both
in education and religion. And as I
saw more of this county, my reasons in
creased for this view of tho subject.
Bishop Wallen of the M. E. Church
told me in Roseburg that he never
would appoint another preacher south
of the Mason ard Dixon line if he
could avoid it, and if the Methodists
were represented by the Southern
Methodists in that particular section,
I believed this to be a non-prejudiced,
and christian view of the subject. I
did not believe that the Southern Meth
odist ought to erect pulpit against
pulpit, as you see in Roseburg, Cor
vallis, and other places . Dr. Kelly
held to the same view in a letter to the
Christian Advocate of comparatively
recent date. Drs. Kelly, Joseph,
West, Cunningham, Windfield and
others, said when I ws in Nashville a
few years since that it was not good
policy to sustain the Southern Metho
dist church on this coast. Bishop
Hargrove intimated as much to one of
the preachers in the Columbia Confer
ence, by saying that the missionary aid
was contingent upon certain circuits
becoming self-sustaining etc., etc.
Other reasons lead me to this conclu
sion. In Salem the capital of the state
there was once a church of the Southern
Methodists, none now. Never was
one in Portland, and in various points
of Oregon and W. T. In 1850 I be
lieve it was, that the M. E; Church
was planted in S. F. four years later the
M. E. Church South was also planted
there, two years agoia San Francisco
and Oakland the M. E. Church made
27 appointments in the district named,
and the M. E. Church South made two,
one in San Francisco and one in Oak
land. Another thing, differing honest
ly from a few of the brethren as to the
propriety of the Southern Methodist
Church controlling the State Agricul
tural college, I incure 1 their displeas
ure. Now I do not believe that any
church ought to control state funds in
that way, for it is damaging to the
church that does without a question
For the good of the church, and cer.
tainly for no other reason, I did what
I could by their direction, and in ac
cord with my own views to sever the
relation that existed between the
church, and it was accomplished in
good faith, and for more than a year
there was not a word of dissatisfaction
from any quarter. Then unfortunately
for the church, an effort is being made
to regain control of that which has
been an "eye sore" to the church for
years. Tho Bishops that are taking
part in this matter are very much in
the dark. A difference of opinion that
I persiste itly believed for some time,
has caused some remarks by brethren
of honorable dciiree, to make that is
not in keeping with my idea of free
and honorable convictions, and chris
tian propriety. 1 only write this
statement that all may see the matter
as it really is, and not as some represent
it I do not by any manner of means
endorse the opprobrious epithets ap
plied by some of the papeis of Oregon
to the Southern Methodist church. A
full history of the college matter will
be published shortly, suppressing ; no
part of the records, as we are sorry to
say Dr. D. C. Kelly did, for he claimed
to have all documentary evidence be
fore him, and yet he did not publish a
solitary resolution of the Dayton Con
ference, nor the rescinding icsolution,
nor the deed of conveyance to the
state, nor anything that gave tlw state
a shadow of claim except tho notifica
tion to tho uovernor. w hen 1 was
in the active relations 1 1 the church
served it as well as I knew how, and
when my convictions gresv into a pos
itive reality so far us I was concerned,
I located, notwithstanding Bishop liar-
grove said to me at tho time I asked
for a location, "that he was sorry to
hear me ask for that relation." Less
than 18 months thereafter I asked for
letters of standing from my Presiding
Elder and preacher in charge in order
to join the Oregon Presbytery, and
they handed me the following;
Oreg. Dist , Columbia Conference,
M. E. Church South.
To all whom it may concern. This
is to certify that the bearer Rev. J. R.
N. Bell presented his certificate of lo
cation, as a local Elder, to the quarter
ly VJonrerence ot Kosebunr charge, on
Dec. 4, 1886, and his name was regu
larly enrolled on ' the journal of the
Conference, and is n w ii good stand
ing in said conftrcace.
E. G. Michael,
April 1 1, 1887.
This is to certify that Rev. J. R.N.
Bell has been an acceptable member of
theM. E. Church South, Roseburg
rlas, Oregon District, Columbia; An
nual Conference. He is holding the
order of Local Elder in said church.

Roseburg, Oregon, April 18, 18S7.
P. S. Rev. J. R. N. Bell has been
one of the most promiuent ministers
in our church on this coast, and faith
ful and efficient in all his work; and
as an old friend I recommend him as
true and tried. I have known him in
timately for 12 or 14 years.

INDIAN WAR VETERANS.
SECOXIi AXNUAZ. JlEVXIOX.
Speeches at the Pavilion by Various Veter
ansPresentation of flags and business Of
the E nea miment.
Pursuant to the announcement
which was published, the precession
and exercises of the Veterans were
held on the 14th, inst. Promptly at
1.30 o'clock the procession formed on
Fourth street under the direction of
the Grand Marshall, J. Smith of Camp
No. 4 assisted by W. II. Mitchell of
Multnomah Camp No. 2.
The procession was formed as fol
lows First, Kay's band of celebrated
musicians; members of the Indian War
Veterans numbering over a hundred
marching three abreast; carnages car
rying invited guests and those members
infirm with age or crippled. It was a
rare sight to see these heroes who did
valiant service more than a quarter of
o century ago marching side by side as
they fought for home and firesides in
the "dim and shadowy day forever
fled," many of them with weather
stained faces, bending forms and whit
ened locks. Several of the old and
faded flags which had been borne tri
umphantly to victory through the In
dian wars were carried proudly at the
head of the procession. Among those
seated in the carriages were Col. T. B.
Wait grand commander, Col. John
Kelsay vice-grand commander, Dr. W,
C. McKay, Mayor John Gates, Col. Joe
Teal, Col. W. W. Chapman, Col. J. K.
Kelly, Rev. T. L. Eliott, Capt L. F.
Mosher, Dr. R. Glisan and others.
"Fall in Veterans"- "March" was the
word of command given by the grand
Marshall Tbey marched in order to
the Mechanics Pavilion, All along the
line of march the streets were thronged
with crowds, thousands of people wit
nessing the parad. As soon as the
carnages were emptied the band and
veterans entered the building.
Among those seated on the stage was
noticed Co'. Wait, Col. Kelsay, M. R.
Hathaway, Dr. Glisan, Col. W. W.
Chapman, Col. Kelly and qthers. Sev
eral hundred persons had already as
sembled at the pavi'ion before the ar
rival of the procession among evhom
were many ladies; over one thousand
persons were present. J. H. Millen
Esq. acted as president and called the
assemblage to order, strains of music
from the band followed. Rev. T. L.
Eliott offered a brief prayer. Mayor
John Gates delivered the address of
welcome. He said he was very glad
to see s) many veterans of the Indian
wars. It was a pleasure to look into
their time marked faces and recall the
memories of the past. These old cher
ished associations could never and
ought never to be forgotten. They
should never die but be kept fresh and
green. It warmed the heart and kept
bright the claim of friendship and
uiotueruooa. As mayor of the city he
bid them thrice welcome to Portland1
on behalf of the citizens and honed
n, i . ... . . 1
uiuou yiuaaaui, reunions might be per
petuated while a survivor lived.
Again I welcome you to our city add
ed the mayor as he resumed his seat
Col T. B. Wait frrand
l-J "'uUV1 j
W. V. responded in grateful terms to
the mayor's address of welcome. He
briefly reviewed the causes of the sev
eral Indian Wars of Oregon during it3
territorial days. He told of tho rri
vations of the campaigns; what suffer
ings and dangers the men of the pion
eer period went through, spoke of
their bravery and courageous heroism
which prompted the early settlers in
the defense of home and firesides. He
honored these noble men who when
danger threatened, sprang to arms and
stood between wives and children and
the sanguinary foe. These old veter
ans who suffered, who braved perils
ssen and unseen, and who drove back
the murderous Indians by their own
unaided efforts deserves all praise
fiom future generations. Posteiitv
would never know the deep debt it
was under and would scarcely ever.l.
able to repay these adventurous spirits
by whose daring and prowess was laid
the foundation of our present empire
of civilization on the northwest coast.
He spoke of the claims due these veter
ans from the United States a"OTe2at-
ing 4,000,000 which had been diaal-
lowed. He was more than gratified at
the large attendance on the occasion)
and on behalf of the veterans returned
thanks to the city of Portland for its
kind consideration and welcome
"In conclusion" said he, such a cor
dial welcome make3 our hearts beat
with pride and joy and we glory in the
achievements of the past. May God
bless you all, and may your proud citv
increase in wealth .-.nil importance to
the end of time. The aged form and
gray hair3 of tho speaker, his deep feel
ing and earnest manner, claimed the
interest of the large audience and on
retiring ho elicited sincere and raptur
ous applause. Several battle flajrs
were displayed tattered and bullet rid
dlerl as silent mementoes of a bloody
crisis. One of the ilags was carried by
Gen. Pliil Sheridan when he fought the
Indians at the Cascades in 1856
Col. JohnKelsey was tho next speaker
He re.vicwed the Indian Wars from the
Whitman massacre to the last cam
paign carried on by Gen. Miles. He
spoke in glowing terms of the late Gen.
Joseph Lane in the wars of 1852 and
53 and of the ofiiceis and men under
h im. He spoke at length of the great
war of 1855 and 56 extending from
Puget Sound to the California line, and
mentioned with becoming praise Col
Kelly, Col. Nesmith, Ma). Armstrong,
Major Bruce, CoL Chapman and others.
He dwelt with severity on those who
had. tried to underestimate the-valor of
our Militia and that too much credit
was given to the regular soldiers to the
detriment of the volunteers. The vet
erans owed it to themselves to see that
history relating to themselves should be
correctly written. The Cd. was fre
quently interrupted by rounds . of ap
plause. Dr. W. McKay was tho next
speaker. He went far back in the his
tory of Oregon 1839 when the entire
population of Oregon was C5 adults.
He gave details of the several Indians
wars which held the audience almost
spellbound by the cunning and atroci
ties of the savages. At the conclusion
of the Doctor's able address the audi
ence dispersed, the band playing a fare
At the close of the exercises men
tioned. The annual meeting of the I.
W. V. was held in the council chamber
Col. T. B. Wait presiding, M. R. Hath
away (Gd. Adjutant) as secretary. Re
ports were read and acted upon with
other important business transacted.
Col. J. Kelsay was elected Grand Com
mander for the ensuing year and Capt
L. F. Mosher Vice-Grand Commander,
In the evening Col. Wait delivered his
retiring address at Masonic Hall many,
ladies being present. Speeches were'
made by several of the members both
interesting and enjoyable. Old battles j
fought over again recounting ambus-;
cades, deadly surprises, and the sweets;
of victory to crown us all with peace
at last. The horrors of war was twr-
trayed by some of the aged speakers
with a blood curdling pang which threw j
a new light in the history of Oregon;
Territory 30 or 40 years ago when:
some of the listeners wore dwelling in;
safety at the East. The committee on;
badges reportsd and the design suo-J
gested by Capt. Mosher was adopted.!
After a brief address by Judge Caples'
estolling the deeds of tho brave volunJ
teers. He roused the audience to a
pitch of heroism and who gave three
rousing cheers for the men and women,
who fought our early battles and res
cued the countrv, amidst cheers and
strains of music, Tho - meeting broke
up and the large audience filed out oij

Mb. Editor: While opinions are in
order on the subject of returning
flags captured during the war, mine
may be considered with the balance.
When a flag is captured it is presumed
to be attended with a hard light and if
won, it is reported as a trophy by the
conqueror, and to the vanquished it is
by no means a dishonor if bravely de
fended. We have captured Hags on
both sides, and were I a rebel genial
having lost my flag in battle, I would
want the officer who won it to respect
it enough to keep it as an ewdonce of
courage and prowess o:i l oth side?.
Kept to show that it was not taken
without a hard .struggle; without an
honorable defense of it. To ask for it
I would think it very weak in me in
deed. And if the conquerer would not
keep and preserve the flig, then return
it to me and I would preserve it, though
I had lot it. This rule will apply t0
both the federal and rebel cause. We
should remember that these flags are
only valuabhi to show the achievements
made in our civil war and not to per
petuutc the animosities of that dreadful
hour, when brother was arraigned
against brother Let them be pre
served in honor of our courage and
prowess, and not for tho purpose of
keeping alive fceutio ial hatred.
It is not safe for wives
their husbands this year
for there seems to be a craze among
the men for murdering wives that had
left them. We think the principle
mistake was made by the women in
first having anything to do with such
men. Almost every week we have to
chronicle a wife murder.
